So I contracted the recent res://isuk.dll?9878 virus and have been browsing these forums looking for a solution and trying everything I come upon (I now have Adaware, ZoneAlarm, XoftSpy, CWSShredder, SpyBot S&D, Spy Sweeper, Hijack This, Trojan Hunter and now Avast... all tried... in various ways, and failed... )

I fear I have something even worse than the usual CWS res://jerk.dll bug because everytime I open a program or a new piece of mail or a new window, Microsoft Office XP Standard Installer pops up and tries to install god knows what, fails, and then asks me for the proper disc.

I saw this mentioned in the long thread trying to address CWS but have since not seen anything else dealing with it. I think this is the sign of a different strain, or I just have something else working against me.

I also had/have the Home Search Bastard (followed regedit way of removing it and havent checked to see if its back yet)...

So, I was wondering if anyone has gotten the MS Office Pop up thing and if so, have you gotten rid of it and how?

I'm not sure it will help with the MS Office Installer, but you all seem to be into the HJT logs, so I'll go ahead and post mine... who knows what it will show... I've been slowly suffocating the browser hijacking bug for the past couple days through numerous assaults... I still get popups, but it no longer changes my homepage...

if you've gotten this far, I would just like to say thank you to the webmaster and pros who donate their time to keep this thing running... I would have had to rebuild long ago if not for this resource... although, it looks as though I may have to anyway...

PS - I got the bug while surfing cuz McAfee auto-updated and then turned itself off waiting for me to reboot... you believe that? Screwed cuz my anti-virus took a coffee break...

I had the same kind of hijack. Luckily PGP Phantom was able to help me out though. He took me through the steps to get this thing off of my computer. I am still getting the MS installer. He recommended to put the office disk in, since thats what the dialog box asks for. I don't have the disk with me right now so if you try it and it works let me know.

I allowed the MS Office XP thing to run its course and Im currently not getting it as a pop up anymore... I have not yet rebooted, however, and am certain I am still infected (Trojan hunter keeps finding "possible" trojans and spysweeper find the same registry values over and over from CWS)

back to the battle...
